NounEdit

arca de Noé f

  1. Noah's ark

Usage notesEdit

The feminine noun arca de Noé is like other feminine nouns starting with a stressed a sound in that it takes the definite article el (normally reserved for masculine nouns) in the singular when there is no intervening adjective:

el arca de Noé

However, if an adjective intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.
